Dean Volenec takes us back to a simpler time; a time without radio, television, electricity, or indoor plumbing, and a time also full of love and laughter amid the troubles of the Depression. From a small, rural Wisconsin farm comes the true story of conscientious, hard-working people living at a time that tried even the hardiest of souls, who survived with values and sense of humor intact.
